A Meatsmith Harvest

Apr 26, 2020

This is Part 2 of a two-part series.

In this episode, Brandon and Lauren share what has worked well in their homeschooling and parenting efforts. They provide a glimpse into a typical day -- how they balance school, chores, meals, and business. They discuss: how homeschooling and self-sustainability are a natural extension of their lifestyle; the critical roles virtue and self mastery play within the home; and how technology needs to be harnessed to the role of tool - not enslaver.

As a final topic, Brandon and Lauren talk about Brandon's new films on lamb tartare and cabrito, now available under "Membership" on the website.
